5 Reasons Why You Should See 'Love, Simon'

Love, Simon is a coming-of-age story about teenager Simon Spier who has a big secret. He’s gay and no one knows – not his friends and not his family.

We got to see a preview screening thanks to Event Cinemas Macquarie.

So here's why we loved it, and you will too.

1. It’s all about falling in love for the first time

Told through the eyes of 17-year-old Simon Spier, who’s gay. That’s right – finally a gay protagonist in a mainstream teen rom-com!

2. The cast is AMAZING!

You’ll recognise Nick Robinson (Jurassic World), Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) and Keiynan Lonsdale (The Divergent Series: Insurgent, The Flash)

3. Simon’s parents are parent goals

Played by Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel, they're amazingly supportive and super cool!

4. It’s an emotional rollercoaster that you want to be on!

It’s HILARIOUS, heartfelt and super relatable. It will get you in your heart strings - we cried, our friends cried, the grown men sitting in the row behind us cried!

5. The soundtrack is full of absolute bangers

From Aussie legends Troye Sivan and Amy Shark, as well as the Bleachers, Khalid and Whitney Houston!
